Property description

This gardened property is located in the quiet rural area of Sunnybrae on the Salmon Arm of the Shuswap Lake and is an exceptional family vacation spot. There is one main home and one guest cottage that can be rented as one package or separately. Both are on the lakefront with access to the beach, fire pit and boat/swimming dock.

The house offers 1300 sq. Ft. on the main floor and an additional 1000 sq. Ft. on the lakefront walkout level. It will sleep up to 8 adults with 1 King,1 queen, 1 single, 2 doubles, 2 queen futons and a queen sofa bed. A private covered deck features an amazing view of the lake and has the gas BBQ. The living room has TV and DVD with a full collection of movies. The lower level has a family room with TV.
The fully equipped, 1 bedroom guest cabin offers year round accommodation for up to 4 people with 1 double bed and one queen pull out sofa. It is equipped with a full kitchen, TV, and wireless internet access.

Within a half hour drive there are four 18 hole and two 9 hole exec. golf courses, three wineries, movie theatres, shopping, farmers markets, antiquing and local artisans. Within one hour there are five more golf courses and two downhill ski resorts, three more wineries and a family fun centre and water park. You can fish right off the dock or boat to some of the best fishing spots on the Shuswap. Just across the lake there are boat and seadoo rentals.

We say there are 2 kinds of people. Those who are at our lakefront home, those who wish they were there. Enjoy a private family vacation spot with more than enough activity to keep you and kids of all ages busy during your stay.
